Are you a member of Twin Cities Screamo on that shitfactory called facebook? Well goddamn that community has the best, most obscure, most active and most straightforward screamo posts, and it's where I found out about RESI NOTH from Florida. Their dark, abrasive and unsettling take on screamo reminds me most of Ruhaeda, one of the most overlooked bands of the genre from the early 2000s.

The band seemed to be kicking around from 2006 to early 2012 or so and released just a four-song split, an LP and an unreleased track. The 'Manatee split' was the band's first release and is very sick as well as very screamo. Opening with "Last Days", the snare is prominent and driving, with an excellent, destructive transition at 45 seconds and a very Neil Perry conclusion at the one-minute mark. "Plague Gods" is next and plays it out a bit longer, with a slightly slower section and incredible climax as well as a sick title. "Jeremy" has the band going all-out for the first 1:23 in epic German emo-violence fashion and closer "Crouching Tiger Hidden Fuck Off" is not only hilariously titled but a fucking banger that brings to mind Tunes For Bears To Dance To and Robots Don't Cry. Seriously that's a sick release that I can't believe I hadn't heard.

Their 2011 cdr full length 'Resi Noth' is even darker, leaving some of the screamo. "Lost Days" is the opener and has incredible drumming that'll have you spinning, and that Swan Of Tuonela-esque second-half is exceptional. Perhaps my favourite RESI NOTH song is next, "Coma Berenices", a 4:48 travel through hell on lightspeed drums. There's a sick, haunting, section that starts around 1:40 that acts a trippy break from the cacophony of its two bookends. "Into Triangle",  and "It's a Mirage" are short, effective bursts, "Aokigahara", "Flee to the Deserts" and "The Color Of The Variable Out" (with it's terrifying wolf howl) are slightly longer but very engaging, but "Wailing Walls Of Miami-Beach People" and closer "Feral (Instrumental) are overly long and bloated (despite the former's great ending). From what I can only assume is the same session came "栄光の架け橋 aka Bridge of Glory" as digital "unreleased song" on the band's Bandcamp as their sole release. It's 5:27 in length and would have been a fitting/proper closer on the LP, but alas fans were forced to wait six years for its release.
